The Arc de Triomphe stands at the end of the avenue des Champs Elysées at place Étoile – the huge roundabout where 12 tree-lined avenues converge. If you’re into extreme sports you may want to rent a car and take it for a spin around the Arc de Triomphe just to test yourself against Parisian traffic (bear in mind that many travel insurance policies specifically state that you will not be covered if you have an accident on the Étoile roundabout). Napoléon commissioned the arch in 1806, 30 years later it was finished and ready for tourists to gawk at. The best access if from the underground passage on the northern side of avenue des Champs Elysées. You get a pretty good view from the top.

    Such a lovely monument. You can go up but only by stairs

    It's one of the main land marks of Paris.

    There is a lift service for those who can't climb the stairs.

    С Триумфальной арки открывается прекрасный вид на город. И здесь нет очередей, как возле Эйфелевой башни

    The Arc de Triomphe was commissioned by Napoleon in 1806, but he never got to see the finished product. It was completed 15 years after his death.

    La vista desde arriba es espectacular. Eso sí, para subir son muchísimos escalones, llegarás casi sin aliento pero lo vale

    Go up to the top. But be prepared for the walk up 277 steps!

    Spectacular view on Paris. Pay that few Euros for entrance - you just want to see this :)

    Superbe vue ... par contre je trouve très chère l'entrée à 12 euro et dommage que les barrières de sécurités ne soient pas transparente.

    View from top amazing. Lift access for those with a pregnant wife (or kids or elderly etc), only about 20-30 steps at the top.
